New arrivals in time for Christmas

We have now received a fresh load of Christmas classics as well as some all-year delicacies from Friuli. So whether you are looking for a tasty gift or you just have a special craving…come and check out our goodies.

Christmas classics from the Dall’Ava range include:


Panettone, 1 kg – in the varieties: choco-orange, classic or glassato.

Gubana Maria Vittoria, in two sizes: 250g/450g – made with the finest ingredients from Friuli.

Strucchi Maria Vittoria –  450g of small individual gubanine  – each of them an innocent snack, just as long as you don’t polish off the whole box…



Focaccia in treccia, 600g – a plait-shaped soft brioche  with a gubana filling. Simply  delicious. And innocent, of course.

For those with a more savoury taste, you can indulge again in some Salame Casereccio and Soppressa Friulana  from Zoratti Salumificio, both made from Italian pork meat (DOP – di origine protetta – roughly ‘protected designation of origin’) with natural spices, with no gluten or milk derivatives.

Old time favourite salsiccia al peperoncino from Wolf is back in the house, and so is Mortadella with pistachios, and Prosciutto Crudo San Daniele Dok Dall’Ava, 14 and 24 months.

But let’s not forget to say ‘cheese!’

Caciotta Alto But, natural or smoked varieties, Frant cheese and beautiful and delicious goat cheese caciottine are back in store.

Plus we have stocked up on lovely honey varieties from Apicarnia, Wine Grapes vinegar from La Subida and a new entry: Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Le Masse.

Lastly, you will also find a variety of our home-baked biscuits and cookies, nicely packaged up should you wish to give them as present.

Come and peruse…

Wine Vinegar La Subida now on sale!

Donath Salumeria Friulana is proud to be using amongst its ingredients Wine Vinegar – La Subida. An essential addition to any kitchen, this vinegar is guaranteed to bring out the best in even the most simple dishes.

As well as on salads,  try it on eggs, on hefty chowders, on asparagus and sprouts, on  fish and fish soups, in sorbets, or on fruit salads, such as strawberries and raspberries. Simply delicious.

In the words of its maker…“If it is true – and it is true – that a great wine is made with great grapes, it is from such great grapes that I make my great vinegar; you need a few years and, during such an interval, I must look after it, pamper it as if it were a baby child, still in its infancy”  - Josko Sirk

It is now a good time to get your hands on a bottle of La Subida, with the last few bottles  in store now on sale.

As before, there’ll be yummy food to go with your large Spritz Aperol and a lovely room to keep warm in, should the Berlin summer hit out with a vengeance again…and if sunny (that would be lovely), we’ll take to the street!

As before, a prize will go to the person who brings the most people along, so ask your friends, family, colleagues.


And with no football games scheduled on the day, something to keep you occupied, or maybe just a breath of fresh air…

We are looking forward to seeing you this Friday!

The Autochthon Wine Fair is back!

Strong on the success of the first Autochthon Wine Fair in November last year, which saw some 30 wine producers from Friuli, South Tyrol, Austria, and Germany come together in sweet harmony and showcase wines to make even Dionysus and Bacchus proud, the team are at it again, and are delighted to present you the second Autochthon Wine Fairon 14th-15th June 2014.  

This year’s focus will include wines from Italy (FriuliTuscany, Umbria, the Marches, Trentino, Veneto, Piedmont), as well as Portugal, Spain, Hungary and of course Germany, with all in all some 25 wine producers presenting.

In the tasting hall, the wines and the bread will go humbly together, while in the back garden guests will be able to tuck into some traditional salsiccia Friulana, expertly prepared by the Master of the Grill.

And this year, something new! Autochthon’s very own fashion designer Manuela Pott, from Pott Manu-Facture, will be showcasing pieces from her collection, while Autochthon’s organisers Giuliano and Benjamin will also be donning their custom made outfits. We can’t wait to see them, rumour has it they are going to look very cool!

Tickets for this event are available to purchase online until 13th June, in person at Osteria Donath, and on the day.

Time to raise your glasses! (And slurp and spit…)


Thank you all who, despite the rain, came to our first Aperitivo Lenitivo yesterday!

It was great to see familiar and new faces happily mingling in our hidden taverna.

We enjoyed it and we hope you did too! And as we are going to make this a regular event, comments or suggestions are also welcome. (Simply email us at:

In the heat of the moment, however, a very important detail got overlooked! That is, to award the prize to the person who brought the most people along! And the prize goes to…. …ratatantan (drum roll, that is…) ratatantan…..TIZIANA TALOCCI, who brought a lovely bunch of ladies with! Tiziana wins a free entry for two people at our next Aperitivo Lenitivo, on Friday 27th June.

p.s. you may be wondering what this picture has to do with our evening…well not much! But we do think it’s a nice filler, while we upload some more relevant images.

Join us for our very first Aperitivo!

On Friday 23rd May, Salumeria will be hosting its first Aperitivo evening! We are polishing our glasses, dusting off the Prosecco bottles, and getting the Aperol ready for action.

We’ll be serving some yummy bites too, and we even have a prize for the person who brings the most people!  We hope you can join us.

And we’re already thinking of our next one too, the last Friday in June. So save the date!
